The Brands: From AT&T to Zappos
There’s plenty to learn from the top digital brands featured in Web 100. With intense marketplace competition, these companies race to create innovative technologies, utilize emerging best practice techniques and implement third-party integrations to appease investors, better the user experience and ultimately improve the bottom line.
To provide an accurate comparison of the companies that control the majority share of voice in their respective industries (through traffic, social media and more), Web 100 looks at the Web's top brands within six separate sectors.
Finance: Companies in the finance sector are faced with heavy regulation, critical security concerns and unparalleled scrutiny. Even so, there are companies that get it all right - from infrastructure and reliability to third-party and cross-channel integrations. See those 10 companies here.
Lifestyle: Some websites are more than a product or service destination, they are a way of life. They are also case studies in engagement and user experience. You'll find 15 of those lifestyle digital brands in this section of Web 100.
Retail/Consumer Goods: The line between online and offline shopping is blurring, as 80 percent of consumers rank the Internet as most useful for shopping and use it to research goods online before making a purchase (Google 2012). Web 100 merchants are feverishly innovating for this change.
News and Media: Today's digital landscape offers information seekers more media outlets than ever. Both traditional and non-traditional networks vie for their attention socially, digitally and across many other channels. Here are 15 news and media brands that captivated Web users in 2012.
Technology: The tech sector in the digital realm epitomizes innovation, quality offers and, lest we forget, profits. They are some of the most profitable companies in existence and are held, at least should be, to immeasurable standards.
Service Providers: From crowd-sourced information websites to entertainment mavens, the service providers' category is as vast as it is innovative. Here are 20 dynamic and diverse companies setting the bar in digital service.
